Barca Link Haaland
Barcelona ripes Luis Suarez to Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2020. In the opposite direction, the Catalunya team does not have any enhancement for public goods. Therefore, the No. 9 position Suarez left it yet to be able to fill it.
Haaland is located in Barca's sights
Therefore, the need to buy point striker with Barca as a natural basis. And according to the Sport, coach Ronald Koeman's team was watching Erling Braut Haaland closely. Dortmund's young striker showed that he could fully reach Luis Suarez's stature in the near future, even only 20 years old.
The Sport source said that Barca leaders want to close a quality name before or during the Euro 2020 finals (takes place in the summer of 2021) to avoid long night dreams. The two important goals of the Nou Camp team are Lautaro Martinez and Erling Braut Haaland.
Although the current contract is still there until 2023, Inter is rushing to conduct renewal of extension with Martinez, especially consistent with further consuming of the 200 million euros. If approaching Martinez at this time, the cost that Barca will halve, "only" 100 million euros.
However, Barca's temporarily chairman, Carles Tusquets "ended" Haaland rather than Martinez. The 20-year-old Norwegian striker is a phenomenon throughout Europe when shining brightly in a past season, from the old club RB Salzburg to the current team Dortmund.
However at the moment, Barcelona wants to be a thing, and buy Haaland or not another. Both Europe are crazy about Haaland, when witnessing this 20-year-old striker shining for a year and a half. In the Champions League 2020/21, Haaland is even leading the scorer list with 6 goals.
Ready to sacrifice coutinho
And to "move" to Erling Haaland, still following the Sport newspaper, Barcelona is willing to sacrifice Philippe Coutinho star. Accordingly, Barca has just known to sell Coutinho to Juventus in January 2021.
Coutinho may have to sacrifice to Barca recruit Haaland
Catalunya team believes that good relations between the two teams, from the Arthur Melo change to Miralem Pjanic promises to help speed up the sales of the Coutinho. Barca needs money to buy Haaland, and reduce additional wage funds to find ways to push Coutinho to Juventus.
Last season, he was borrowed by Barca to Bayern with the hope of selling off this player. However, the German team only uses Coutinho a season, and does not activate the purchase terms. After returning from Bayern, Coutinho was awarded the opportunity. But what Brazilian midfielder shown from the beginning of the season is not too impressive.
From the day to Barca, the 28-year-old midfielder did not show its high performance as in Liverpool. His school position coincided with Superstar Lionel Messi, so Coutinho had to kick away into two wings, somewhat made him not to promote their ability. Even so, with a high salary with an expensive transfer fee, it is not easy for Barcelona to liquidate Coutinho. And therefore, Barca's ability to buy Haaland is much harder.
